Yes! Removing lactose from your diet would be the first step to continued nursing. I have three children, all of whom are allergic to dairy, wheat, and gluten. When my second was born, my oldest had excema really bad, so we cut out all gluten and dairy from our diet. My second from birth on had been projectile vomitting almost every nursing and was extrememly fussy and colicky. Once we cut out dairy and gluten, my nursing baby was fine..no more fussiness or puking. I tested it, by eating things with gluten or dairy in it and sure enough every time she would start puking and be fussy. When my third was born, same thing. He has a few more food triggers to his fussiness, but I knew right away to start testing through eating the foods myself, and cut gluten and dairy out of my diet again, along with the other triggers I figured out over time. Most of the allergies did affect my children almost instantly through breastfeeding. If it was something that bothered them they would puke or get fussy not even 10 minutes after I had eaten it, so I don't doubt that if you are dealing with a lactose thing that yes, you would be seeing a difference already. I know there are people who would argue if or if not that is possible, however, in my experience that was the case. I also experienced my children being weary or wierd about nursing after I had eaten something that would bother them. It was almost like they knew, or could smell, that the breastmilk was going to make them not feel too well if they did nurse, even though they were hungry and did actually want to nurse. Good luck and keep nursing. Nursing is the best thing for your children and it doesn't compare to anything. I nursed all my children till they were three and am still currently nursing my youngest, almost two. It's difficult at first to cut things out of your diet, but what aspect of parenthood isn't worth the challenge! Good luck!
